this morning. it's a big development in the fight against syria and a new level of u.s. involvement. we just learned within the past few hours the defense secretary leon panetta signed an order sending two patriot missile batteries to turkey. that's to assist that nation in defending against any pollible military action by syria. this move was expected as the civil war in syria destabilizes the assad regime with each passing day. in addition to this, 400 u.s. troops are going to turkey. they will be deployed to operate the missile batteries. cnn's nick payton walsh has the development. >> reporter: good morning. 400 personnel will be accompanying the batteries. let me give you history. over the past two months, we saw sporadic exchanges of fire across the border. syrian military firing into turkey causing often destruction and death. turkey often responding. that brought about this request to nato for patriot missile batteries. they're supposed to be there. this particular type better at taking out missiles in the sky rather than taking down aircraft. but this move part of a nato response. a
, they have been using their -- they have their weapons standing by and the choppers also above the school. that's where the school is located, further down dickenson drive. now that chopper's been sitting up there for the past couple of minutes now, we're told the children inside that school were evacuated a short while ago. i can tell you that parents have been out here all morning just sort of walking the streets. they can't get any closer to the school than we are right now. you can see the parents just sort of running up the streets, everyone here is just trying to get -- >> again watching live coverage there come out of newtown, connecticut. clint vanzant what's been watching this coverage with us, as we're getting more reports and information from liz who is on the ground and watching, what is your sense about what is happening inside the school? >> well in a situation like this, richard, the state police and responding law enforcement officers have a number of responsibilities. first and foremost, if there is in fact an active shooting situation, they have to get to the shooter and
. of course, we know this is a difficult transition. please work with us. we will continue forth until the president takes the airways, but we have to focus on apple. what went wrong in apple in china. where are they huge crowds of people tripping over themselves to get the new iphone five? after all, 300,000 reorders. 300,000. it sounds like a lot, but there are some are calling this launch this news, even a dad. will this further erode the stock which has plummeted 28% since that september? we decided to go beyond this. of the chinese over it? some months, the apple turnout, not at all what it was cracked up to be. investors are voting with their wallets. apple shares are down. just a couple of percentage points. important to know this is trading in a nine month low. add another 4 percent today, the negative comments adding to the selling pressure. the firm cutting its 2013 estimates and lowering its price target. we know that maybe the huge ones are not so huge in china because apple instituted an online reservation system. folks, let's not ignore it. the allies did not even come cl
when we went out to search, we took the assets with to us ensure they were right there immediately so we could refact necessary. that is all i have as far as the details are concerned. i want to give you one more briefing, probably just before 6:00 try to get back up here for one more briefing. i'll take brief questions but there are certain things we cannot discuss at this time. sir? >> do we have anyone that survived it? >> one person was injured that suffered an injury and did survive. >> can you confirm a body in the house was adult male? >> i can't confirm. i know about the secondary scene. it didn't have time to get in detail about that. i'll try to do it for 6:00. >> i'm not confirming the identity of the shooter. we have a tentative identification. we are still working with that. not going to put it out there. he i'll identify the shooter at an appropriate time. but for our investigatortory purposes not appropriate to do that now. >> what is happening with hoboken, new jersey, the investigation there? >> it's part and parcel of what we do. i told you we will leave no stone
and that gunman is dead. as police have been telling us now, 20 children dead, 18 of them dead at the scene. and in addition to that, six adults are also dead, including the principal of the school. we understand that yet another adult was found dead at another location that police are not officially disclosing as of yet. and we are told that the mother of the suspected shooter, who is also dead at the scene, was also killed. she is a teacher and she was also killed at that school, according to our law enforcement sources. in addition to this, we are also told by our sources that another person is being questioned at this time but is not being called a suspect right now, and also that person is not being identified, wolf. so while the school is being called secure and safe by law enforcement authorities right now, they are -- they still have a lot of investigating to do. they have not officially released the name of the shooter or the other person being questioned or the names of any of the victims at this time. it's just an awful scene, and parents found out about this, wolf, when they rec
handguns, at least one rifle. and then also bob, this a.p. report that john just brought us up to date on, that the brother may be in custody. what have you learned? >> i keep asking that question, all of our folks here working the phones and we're asking the question of various sources, is there one shooter? is there more than one shooter? who's the second person that was detained at the scene? and i have to tell you, so far all of the information we're getting-- it always comes with a caveat-- but it all seems to suggest there was one shooter. the person who was detyned near the shooting scene was a man described as wearing b.d.u.s, khaki fatigues and working near the woods. i had a number of people tell me we don't think he's a player in this. that said, now the associated press says they're talking to the shooter's younger brother as john made the point this might just be due diligence by investigators to obviously want to talk to available family members and friends and close associates. so we can't say one way or the other and i think we need to be careful about not getting out too

scheduled a news conference for 1:00 eastern. joining us on the phone, msnbc analyst and former fbi profiler clint van zandt. clint, give us your read, your assessment, on this situation? >> well, we know that the shooter is dead. we don't know whether that is by law enforcement action when the first responding officers went in and confronted him or whether, as we saw in the portland, oregon, mall shooting this past week, whether the shooter actually shot himself committing suicide. we know that at least two handguns were found. you know, that takes us back to april 2007 when the shooter at virginia tech, in that case, who killed 32 and wounded 15, also had two handguns. what it does suggest, though, is that this individual went in there with carrying two handguns and perhaps other ammunition. he went in there apparently to confront someone. we're told that confrontation took place in the office of the school and may have spilled out from there. we're still trying to understand the number of victims and the level of injury. >> clint, you know, when we talk about these shootings, first off, t
the republican ranks. susan mcginnis starts us off this morning. susan, good morning to you. >> hi. good morning, terrell. the two men met for less than an hour, and that's not an encouraging sign. neither of them spoke during the meeting but what we heard before and after is neither side is budging on their core decisions, this as time to make a deal grows shorter. house speaker john boehner made the short trip up pennsylvania avenue to the white house thursday to talk to president obama about the fiscal cliff. the tax hikes and spending cuts set to kick in january 1st. they met for nearly an hour. both sides describe the discussion as frank. >> i think speaker boehner has a contentious caucus. >> the president wants to pretend that spending isn't a problem. that's why we don't have an agreement. >> president obama insists on raising taxes on the top 2% of earners, but even he recognizes that's a tough sell. >> the idea of not raising taxes has become sort of a religion for a lot of members of the republican party. >> speaker boehner accuses the president of dragging out negotiations. >> unfort
: coverage continues on "happening now.". jenna: if you're just joining us a school shooting in connecticut. still uncon fermed details. this happened at sandy hook elementary school about hour and a half ago. according to wires and local reports we're getting some information there are several injuries at this elementary school this friday morning. a few details about this area. this place, this newtown, township, in connecticut is about 60 miles from new york city. it's a town of less than 30,000 people. so small community and a small elementary school at that we're trying to work on details what actually transpired this morning but according to the latest, we have unconfirmed report from the local paper, the courrant, there are two shooters being reported. one shooter is dead according to this report. another one is still on the loose. again very spotty reporting at this time. we're working very hard to get someone on the scene there. you're looking at a satellite shot of this elementary school. again a very developing scene there shortly after 9:40 this morning according to the local ne
of hillary clinton's security advisory board. thank you both for joining us this evening. >> thanks for having us on. >> eliot: steve let me start with you. after the way the president had reinforced susan rice, not only saying an attack on her is an attack on me at a press conference, the scripted applause and his statements about her at a cabinet meeting just recently, this seems like such a sharp u-turn and you heard me say a few moments ago seems as though the president caved. am i wrong about that? what do you understand to be going on here? >> well, i think it was. i think susan described it accurately. she's a very capable and competent woman who would have, i think done a great job as secretary of state. that said, it is a distraction. it has been a distraction. when jonathan karl asked the president what he thought of john mccain and lindsey graham's comments, i actually happened to be hosting the meeting that that happened at, it started a spark and you had a number of senators, john barossi was one susan
secretary leon panetta announcing that the u.s. is sending patriot missiles and troops to turkey to deal with the growing threat from the neighboring syria. 400 troops will join nato forces and stand ready to act if syria intends to unleash chemical weapons. fox's leland vittert is in our middle east bureau. leland, just a few days ago the head of nato said the assad regime is about to collapse. why deploy these troops now? >> reporter: it really has to do with showing solidarity with the turks who are clearly very scared and timing comes a couple days after we learned that the syrians were mixing chemical weapons to possibly use. so this is the united states and nato's way of really get being behind turkey, a close ally saying we support you. the secretary of defense was quick to point out that the patriot missiles are just that, defensive weapons that will be put down along the syrian border to protect syria, protect turkey from attacks by syrian jets or scud missiles that would fly in but that is not exactly the whole story. the patriots could be easily programmed and put in a no-fly

was struck by the description earlier, simply reminding us of what we all know as we take the kids to school, schools are often made up long hallways with classroom doors. unfortunately, that's the entrance to the classroom. if you have a suspect that approaches that classroom door as perhaps was the case today there is just very little other than asking the children to perhaps dive under their desks. we do know that parents telling us earlier in our live coverage of this incident that the teachers were extraordinarily calm in taking these children out of the school. kids were told to cover their eyes. they were also told to grab a friend and leave all of your belongings behind. look at this. their faces say it all. and if you noticed which i certainly did early, none of them have their coats on as they walk out of that school and look at those adults in that frame, intent on getting those children to that neighboring fire house there in sandy hook. there's a volunteer fire house just adjacent to that school and that is where teachers were told to take the children just as soon as they could

k: so he continued to bother us with this nonsense about how he is bipartisan when of course he is massively republican in his policies. by the way, three or four senators came in and out during the speech. look at this again. this is the chamber as he's speaking. i think i can hear crickets. loser. loser. wow, what an esteemed senator. throw him in the ring. he had this coming for a long time. joe, watch out there you go. i didn't even want you to see it coming. joe lieberman loser of the day.
